Server :: Not Able To Make Samba Share That Has Write Access

Mar 21, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.1 server on an PII Compaq. Read an article "Samba: How to share files for your LAN without user/password" [URL] and some others and can see and pull up files, can't change or delete. Here is my smb.conf:

# Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options most of which
# are not shown in this example

# Some options that are often worth tuning have been included as
# commented-out examples in this file.
# - When such options are commented with ";", the proposed setting
# differs from the default Samba behaviour
# - When commented with "#", the proposed setting is the default
# behaviour of Samba but the option is considered important
# enough to be mentioned here .....

Server :: No Write Access To Subfolders Of Samba Share

Dec 4, 2009

I am using samba t share my files.I am sharing /media/MEDIA folder. it is a ntfs partition mounted with ntfs-3g with write/read access from linux.I can see and browse my shares and also create files in the root of this partition, ie /media/MEDIA, but in its subfolders i do not have write permissions.

Server :: Unable To Enable Write Access To Samba Share

Aug 14, 2010

Hi,

I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out what is wrong with my Samba share. I have set up a directory /samba to serve up some movies, music, etc, on an Ubuntu 10.04 Server box. For now, I have given that directory 777 permissions, along with the subfolders:


Code:
drwxrwxrwx 4 michal michal 4096 2010-06-22 18:02 Apps
drwxrwxrwx 3 michal michal 4096 2010-06-22 19:02 Music
drwxrwxrwx 3 michal michal 4096 2010-08-14 19:27 Pics
drwxrwxrwx 5 michal michal 4096 2010-06-22 19:48 Video
This is how my smb.conf file looks like for this particular share:


Code:
[share1]
comment = share1
browsable = yes
path = /samba
write list = michal
Furthermore, I went ahead and mapped the Samba user to my Linux user account in /etc/samba/smbusers:


Code:
michal = "michal"
When I try to login from a Windows machine using michal as the username, I can see the folders, but I am unable to create new files on the share. Considering that the file system permissions are liberal on the share directory, I have no clue as to why I'm still getting denied write permission.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Server :: Cant Write To Samba Share Using PHP IDE

Jun 11, 2010

I have a Samba Share which is mounted on various linux systems throughout the network. Whenever any of my user access those files using vim, Gedit it works fine and get perfect permissions to read/write those files. but whenever they try to open with any php IDE (quanta plus, geany, eclipse-pdt) they get error while saving those files. I dont think it is a permission or samba issue because we are able to edit/save those files using normal editors..

Server :: Samba Share With AD2008 Unable To Write

Jun 29, 2010

I can map the share just fine, but cannot write, regardless of how open I make the permissions of the Samba share.

Share from testparm:

[student]
comment = Test share
path = /home/share/students
valid users = @students
admin users = DSSJCAdministrator
write list = @students
read only = No
create mask = 0770
force create mode = 0770
directory mask = 02770
force directory mode = 02770
directory security mask = 0775
guest ok = Yes

getfacl:

getfacl /home/share/students/
getfacl: Removing leading '/' from absolute path names
# file: home/share/students/
# owner: root
# group: students
user::rwx
group::rwx
group:students:rwx
mask::rwx
other::rwx

AD auth works fine with winbind, getent/wbinfo returns properly enumerated groups.

Unfortunately, the logs say:

[2010/06/29 11:17:32, 2] smbd/open.c:2447(open_directory)
open_directory: unable to create New folder. Error was NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

Server :: Samba Share Read Only For Guests / Write For Some Specific Users

Jun 19, 2011

I've been reading for a while about samba but I haven't found a solution to my problem yet.I'd like to know if, the configuration I have in mind, is possible at all ("security = user" is what I'm using now).I want a directory to be:
1) read only for guests and some UNIX users;
2) write for some other UNIX users.

The advantage of this configuration would be that every single user in my LAN (with or without a UNIX account) would be able to read the content of the shared directory Music and I (UNIX user andrea) could manage the folder directly trough samba preserving the correct owner/group and permissions on the new files/folder created.

Notes about my configuration above:
1) as it is now every user gets authenticated by samba as nobody so even I (andrea) cannot write in it;
2) commenting out the line "guest ok = yes" I can authenticate as "andrea" and write in it but guest access is not possible any longer.

Server :: Can See My Samba Share But Cannot Access It.

Apr 24, 2009

This is my first post. I am not all that new to Linux. I have done lots of reading on the OS but always felt a little timid when it came to trying out stuff.Here is my problem I have a stand alone samba server I am trying to setup to share all my digital photos and other doc. I can see the share from other machines. On the windows machines you can see the users home directory and the share itself in an folder icon. Whenever I try to access the share it asks for a passwd. I enter the passwd and the share folder is visible when I click on the folder I get and error message.

CentOS 5 Server :: Can't Access Samba DFS Share

Feb 19, 2010

I'm trying to set up a test system for Windows 7. I've been having trouble getting it to map drives on the domain where I work, so I wanted to set up a test system with a similar setup so I can play around with settings without mucking up our network. Only problem is I can't get it configured to even work with XP, which does work on our domain.

When I type \server in the Run box I get the explorer window showing all of the test shares I've set up. But when I try to access them, it says the network path could not be found. Here is my smb.conf file:

[global]
workgroup = MAJOR

The content of "public" will be visible for all Samba users, but they will have read/write access only to the specified subfolders based on my security policy. I need the best way for doing this kind of stuff...

Server :: Unable To Access Samba Share On CentOS 5.4 From Windows XP Or Vista

Jan 23, 2010

I can't be the first one with this problem. What am I missing?

I have setup Samba servers in the past, just none under SELinux. The last one I configured was a couple years ago, so I wouldn't doubt I'm a bit rusty.


---- Environment summary:
Clean server install of CentOS 5.4 includes SELinux
- lets call this 'server'
- updated samba to 3.0.33-3.15.el5_4.1

Client1 - Windows XP sp4 - WINS configuration uses 'server' noted above
Client2 - Windows Vista - WINS configuration uses 'server' noted above

---- What works / what doesn't ------
Clients can see the server (XP and vista) in network neighborhood.
The following does not work from windows (xp or vista)
net view
net view \server
net view \server-ip
net view \servershare

This does work on the server
smbclient -L \server
smbclient -L \server --user validuser
smbclient -L \client1 --user validuser


---- What I have configured and tried (config/output below) --------
firewall ports for samba are open
SELinux enforcing or permissive
file context is set on share
samba booleans are set

***firewall
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -s 192.168.0.0/24 -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 445 -j ACCEPT

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba File - Access Shared Folder - Error: Failed To Retrieve Share List From Server

I am to the point where printing works (using it as an ipp print share, samba is configured for it, but I don't know if it works or not), and I can access the shared folder from Windows, but I can't access the shared folder from any Ubuntu machine.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Write To Samba Share (NTFS)

Aug 10, 2010

I have this samba share for ghosting images to (backing up computers at work) and I can read the ghost images just fine from the share, but I am unable to write to the share. From any windows environment I have tried, I get a disk is full error. I have 200GB+ free space, so this is not the actual issue. I believe there is a write permission somewhere that I am overlooking. My setup basically lets me log in under the username samba from a client machine.

Here is my smb.conf file:

Code:

#======================= Global Settings =======================
[global]
workgroup = discount.local
server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)

[code]....

I've tried chown on /media/Images to make it owned by samba, but it just reverts once I remount the partition. Either that or my eyes are playing tricks on me.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Can Share Mounted Thumb Drive But Can't Write?

so after searching and reading, and searching some more, im stuck. i cant seem to get a mounted thumb drive to give write access. first thing to know is that, im using a seagate dockstar with a primary thumb drive[sda1] booting debian and samba.

i guess you could say im still in the testing phase, just trying to make sure files can be shared, mounted and accessed by users. the problem is stated as the title. i have successfully shared a folder in sda1 with rw access, but i cant do the same for the second drive[sdb1].

for sda1 with rw access, here are the smb.conf settings:

Ubuntu Networking :: Mount Samba Share - Connect - Read And Write From Other Apps

Mar 9, 2010

I have a networked raid drive. Thecus 2100. Its running linux, and includes samba sharing. On that I have a folder shared. I can connect to and read and write from nautilus. No problems. However, I can't use other apps through that method. Its not really "mounting" that drive in the sense you'd normally think of (afaik).

If I try to mount the folder, no matter how I have tried so far (-t cifs, smbmount, etc), I can navigate the folders, but if I try to read any file I get a permission error. Looking at the permissions with 'ls -l', everything looks OK. The weird thing is, I can write a file, then read that file back as long as its the same session.

Just now I tried 'smbclient' with no special arguments. Just the server and path url. It asked for my password. Once I was in, I had no trouble getting files. I had a thread about this a while back and there were several links and all sorts of command line options to try, which I did, with no different outcome. I think its got to be something much simpler and more obvious. smbclient and nautilus seem to have no trouble. Anybody know what they're doing differently?

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Share Denies Write, Smb.conf Snippet Included?

Aug 10, 2010

I'm a very -slightly- advanced Samba user. I believe I know the basics of editing the smb.conf and I know to use smbpasswd to update the Samba users database.I have a group of identical shares.They are readOnly for the group @movies-play and they are (supposed to be) writeable by specific users. The readOnly group works great, no prob there, but I cannot get write access for the specified users. They are in the Samba user database using smbpasswd -a mark and neelix.Here is the share section in my smb.conf...

Code:
[movies-usb3]
path = /media/usb3/movies
guest ok = no[code]....

I have the workgroup and netbios info set. I have security=user set. The folder 'movies' in the path above is owned by 'mark' so it seems I should be able to write in it but I can't.I'm connecting to the share (it's on a server running Lucid) from my laptop (running Lucid. I added this mount info to fstab...

Code:
//spock/movies-usb3 /media/spockmovies3 cifs credentials=/home/mark/.smbpasswd 0 0
Of course spock in the hosts file so it resolves. I can see the share fine, just can't write.

Debian :: No Write Access To Mounted Volume (over Samba)

Aug 10, 2011

I have recently installed Debian on my NAS server. I have also configured Samba for sharing the home directory of a nas user i.e. /home/nas To this directory I have read/write from a windows machine using the nas user credentials.

When I mount my RAID partition /dev/md0p1 to the /home/nas directory, I then realize that all content in this directory (files and subfolders) is only owned by the root user. When trying to access from the windows machine the /home/nas directory, I do not have any write access, only read. I have tried both the nas and the root user credentials.

I have also attempted the change the ownership of the mounted RAID partition to the nas user with the -R recursive option, but I get for the internal files/subfolders an error "operation not supported".

How can I overcome this problem?

- Is there something not done properly in the /dev/md0 array definition (i.e. ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid1 num-devices=2 UUID=bddf8b69:c97967b5:cb104784:7fef7cc3 )?

- Is there something not done properly in the /dev/md0p1 mounting (i.e. mount /dev/md0p1 /home/nas)?

- Should I do any extra configuration before the mounting etc?

Software :: Cannot Access Samba Share In Fedora 9

I'm relatively new to liunx and I have recently installed Fedora 9 to act as a media server. I thought everything was going well until I tried to connect to my Samba share but could not.Not sure what the netbios is but I believe this can be anything I want?So as far as I can tell, the laptop can see the Samba Share, Fedora can see it's own Samba share but nothing (both laptops XP and Vista or the Media Player) can connect to the /public folder..I don't login to either Laptop with a user account, so I believe I do not have to create a user.
